  A recent four week trip to Australia provided several opportunities for kite aerial photography. Byron Bay is one place we stayed for a few days. It is a community that seems to attract hippie wannabees, both young and old. It's a nice place to visit but for us the weather was, shall we say, mixed. My fourth Australian KAP session was at Tallow Beach, not far from Byron Bay but on the opposite side of Cape Byron and the Byron Lighthouse. Cape Byron, by the way, is the easternmost point in Australia. I went to Tallow Beach with the...

  A recent four week trip to Australia provided several opportunities for kite aerial photography. This second session was in on Cape Woolamai Beach on Phillip Island. We were en route to watch the Penguin Parade where every evening hundreds of the smallest penguins in the world, Little Blue Penguins (aka Fairy Penguins) come out of the water and head for burrows on shore. Cape Woolamai Beach was mainly a sand beach but there was some rocky shoreline interspersed as one approached the end of the cape. There were also sand dunes that evolved into cliffs the further you went...

I did two kite aerial photography sessions several days apart at opposite ends of the beach named Playa El Palmar, Ixtapa, Mexico. Playa El Palmar is the nearest beach to Casa Candiles, the Bed and Breakfast where we stayed during our vacation. The B&B is about 10 minutes walk from the public access near the south end of the beach (beside the Barcelo Hotel). There are no small hotels or B&Bs on the beach as you will see from the photographs. The buildings are large hotels and condominium complexes. These images were obtained using a camera suspended below a kite...

While on vacation in Ixtapa, Mexico, the owner of our Bed & Breakfast, Casa Candiles, took us on a couple of field trips. One of these was to Barra de Potosi, about a 1/2 hour's drive south along the Pacific Coast from Ixtapa - Zihuatanejo. We planned to have a few hours there doing beach stuff and having lunch at one of the many beachside restaurants. It gave me time to fly kites as well as explore with my SLR. I did the terrestrial camera work first because I wanted to check out where would be best for catching the...
